This rule is Obsolete
Synopsis:It is a good practice to call super() in a constructor
Language:Java
Severity Level:4
Category:Controversial


Description:
It is a good practice to call super() in a constructor. If super() is not called but another constructor (such as an overloaded constructor) is called, this rule will not report it.
public class Foo extends Bar{
 public Foo() {
  // call the constructor of Bar
  super();
 }
 public Foo(int code) {
  // do something with code
  this();
  // no problem with this
 }
}
